Jump for Joy!

Greetings!  It's Saturday, and the Pink Team's turn over at Eclectic Ellapu for a new challenge.  This time, we are asked to create a project around summer and sunshine.  
I chose to work with this beautiful set of images from Crafty Individuals.  As soon as I saw this set, I was drawn to it.  I love the beach, and the young ladies just embody that free spirit you have for a day at the beach.  
I began by smooshing Bundled Sage, Broken China, Salty Ocean, Peeled Paint and Burnished Brass Distress Paints on my Craft Pad and spritzing with water.  I dragged my card stock through it and spritzed more water until I was satisfied with the marbling.  The edges were distressed and torn and the then mounted to a blue mat and the card base.  The images were stamped with Timber Brown StazOn Ink and adhered to Crunchy Wax Paper by Paper Artsy using Kraft Photo Corners.  I lightly water colored the images with Distress Markers.  I decided to add the white ribbon along the bottom as the stars added sparkle and reminded me a bit of star fish.  I added some cheese cloth to the card front, bits of burlap string and some metal sea charms.  Can you smell the salt air?!  I sure hope you will check out the rest of the Design Teams projects and then share your own with us.  I am also submitting this card to the current Sea, Sun and Beach challenge at Crafty Individuals.  Thanks so much for stopping by.  Best, Yvonne
